Our builders prefer trusses for a pole barn roof over traditional stick-framed roofing because they are quick and easy to install. Not only that, but trusses also eliminate the need to cut complex roof angles, reducing the labor required to complete your build. Trusses also allow you to create further distances between walls without having to install center supports, giving your pole barn a wide-open feeling. Read on to learn all about our truss installation process!
What Are Roof Trusses?
Before we dive into our truss installation process, it’s important to understand what trusses are in the first place. A truss is a pre-manufactured, rigid structure that spans the width of your pole barn. Put simply, it’s a structural element of your building that creates the slope of your roof.
How Beehive Buildings Installs Roof Trusses on Pole Barns
Step 1: Manufacturing & Engineering
At Beehive Buildings, our team partners with high-quality roofing suppliers. After finalizing your building plans, we’ll contact our supplier to have them custom-craft your trusses. They will manufacture and engineer the trusses according to your exact design specifications, ensuring your build is completed to your precise expectations.
Step 2: Building Site Delivery
Once your trusses have been manufactured, they’ll be delivered to the building site so our team can professionally install them. We coordinate all delivery and installation plans on your behalf so you can enjoy a smooth, stress-free building process from start to finish.
Step 3: Roof Truss Installation
Using electric winches, our team will lift the trusses and secure them into place to create the slope of your roof. Check out our team on the job as they install trusses in the videos below.
Why You Shouldn’t DIY Roof Truss Installation
While truss installation is certainly simpler than traditional framing techniques, there is far less room for error when choosing this method. Each step of the truss installation process is carefully laid out in detailed instructions provided by the manufacturer. It takes a skilled professional with years of industry expertise to decipher these instructions and ensure accurate, safe installation.
Attempting to DIY truss installation can have serious consequences for your building’s structural integrity — especially if you’re a novice builder. Not only that, but without the right equipment, you could put yourself in harm’s way. If you’re planning a pole barn build, it’s best to leave the job to the professionals.
